Graham Doesn't Like Being 'Just A Blocker'

Daniel Graham signed with Denver under the promise he'd be more involved in the passing game.

But the sixth-year tight end has become his own worst enemy. So adept is he at pass protection that the Broncos are reluctant to send him out on routes.

Graham has 20 catches this season, ranking him 32nd among N-F-L tight ends. He hasn't caught a pass since November 19th.

Although disenchanted with his role in the passing game, he's accepted his fate -- he's primarily a blocking tight end, and a wealthy one at that.

Denver offensive boss Mike Heimerdinger isn't afraid to have Graham go out over the middle. Yet he's reluctant to spread him out wide, a job better suited for tight end Tony Scheffler, who has 29 catches so far.
